Snakes on a Birthday

With the dual honor of getting another year closer to death and having a day off work, I saw Emus Snakes on a Plane yesterday. It's what I expected, and definitely better with a group of people. There were some pretty funny moments, but they should have let Samuel Jackson go nuts more.

This doesn't really give anything away, but in one scene, a couple get into the bathroom to join the mile high club. They disable the smoke detector and fire up a joint before going at it. I leaned over to TLB and said, "Lawbreaking, drug taking, and fornicating. They're definitely in the high risk group for movies like these."

It's not Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park (so bad it's like a religious experience) or Desperado (completely ridiculous but still damn good). I was entertained and got my money's worth, and there is one really funny scene involving, shall we say, a wiener snake.

I did see the trailer for this and almost wet myself with excitement as I had no idea this film was in production. I know it's probably going to be terrible, but they showed a quick cut of the Devil playing the drums. I can't resist that.

Didn't they already make a Jack Black Tenacious D movie?

I cannot wait to see Running with Scissors. That trailer is great!

H.B.!, too.

Happy Birthday for yesterday - we were still on our way back from T. Middy's Scout Camp Staff Reunion, where I got to see pictures of him from the early 70s. He had sideburns and wore a pink flowered Speedo.

Our marriage may be in jeopardy.

But happy birthday to you from us, with love and kisses.

Thanks for the b-day wishes. It was nice and low key. Would have been better to have some of you ex-pats here, though :-(

I'm a little late on the bandwagon, but happy birthday. You should stretch it out at least a week, though.
